 Post subject: Murphys Law Theme

I want to do a comedy magic show on the basis of Murphys Law, anything that can go wrong will go wrong. With this premise I will have my theme and use magic effects to tell my story. An example would be i have to turn in a final paper or do a presentation, and I chose to write a paper. While i was going to class my paper is destroyed. So, I have to do a presentation at class on the spur of the moment, Maybe I do professor's nightmare with my shoe laces.

I want experiences that have happened to most people. I'm really excited by this theme. I hope some people might inspire good ideas for the use of magic.

One thing you can do is a Bill change, how most people have 5 $1bills and turn them into 5 $100bill, maybe you can talk about how you were going somewhere expensive, and thought you had more money than you had (pull out some $20s or $10s) but in reality you only had $5, and do the change?

You could do a prediction, but with the theme of how you were trying to come up with your own idea, yet everything you wrote was already done by the spectator.

You should do a prediction trick where you predict 51 cards 1 after the other and the only card you didn't predict was the one you forgot to add in the list.

I like this premise, it has lots of potential.

Electric hand buzzer only buzzes your hand
Squirting flower only squirts from other flower
Torn and restored restores the wrong card
Appearing bird drops to the floor dead
Magic Coloring book turns into porn (ok maybe not so good for kids shows)
Pull out the directions to your tricks when things go wrong

I remember seeing a magician pulling scarfs out of his sleeve and as they were being pulled (all tied together at the ends) you could see the scarfs being dragged on the magician's chest (showing there stuffed on the other side) ... That got a great laugh .... and I still remeber it today
